Residential Garbage Collection
Each household within the city is provided with a 96 gallon trash container that is emptied each week by automated garbage trucks. The city has two automated trucks that operate Tuesday through Friday to collect solid waste. Residential solid waste collection is provided through property taxes and there is no charge for a single container. If households require an additional container, it is provided at a cost of $52.76 per six months. Trash should be bagged and placed in containers. Containers should be placed curbside by 6:00 a.m. the day of pickup, and containers should be removed by 6:00 p.m. that same day.
